There are two parts to this test.
Part One - City Use Fuel consumption –
Firstly after refilling after arriving in Penang Island, My Car is considered fully utilize with 2 Adults 3 Children or with 3 Adults, 5 Children running around Hilly (Tg Bungah, Batu Ferringi) Roads, as well as a trip Tg Bungah, Bt Ferringhi, Ayer Itam, Batu Maung, Tg Bungah in Heavy Traffic Condition, Being Stuck in Traffic Lights condition, and following a heavy footed driver. Fuel Computer Reading Keep on increasing till it reach 9.2lt per 100km / around 11km per lt or around RM0.185 cent per km.
Part Two – Manual Calculation vs Fuel Computer Calculation
Fuel Computer was reading 7.7lt at refill, however when calculate manually I got a reading of 7.2lt which the fuel computer is out by 0.5lt. However this is base upon one tank full. Looks like I have to repeat this test a few times to confirm this.
